The Elephantom has moved into the West End. Magical entertainment for young and old, The Elephantom is a wonderfully inventive mix of puppetry, movement, dance, music — and theatrical ingenuity. This adaptation of Collins’ picture book about the little girl who is unexpectedly visited by a big blue elephant, is the perfect summer treat for all the family.

It was the Elephantom Press opening of the show’s West-end transfer today. A great time was had by all, (Even some celebs) much excitement by young and old when the star of the show ‘Trunky’ showed his head. If you look closely at the photo of Damian Lewis, you can spot me and Becky just hanging out!

Just adding the final touches to the beautiful Secret Garden puppets all set to travel off to Florida for the Sarasota ballet company. We can’t quite believe how much we achieved in just three weeks.

We can’t wait to share the photo-shoot with you. We’d like to thank our great team of makers, Gareth Charlton and trainee Tom Tanner and the puppet designer Toby Olie’ for such a fun job.

We Launch Into ‘The Secret Garden’.

We’ve made allot of progress in just a week, which is a good thing as we are already one third of the way into the build. We have a build list of bunnies, a robin, crow and Fox. Its so exciting to see them take shape.
